    5 of 7 lots have been awarded. Sky are the big winners so far. BT will show 10 less games per season it seems, with Sky showing more. The other two lots are for midweek and bank holiday games and are still up for grabs with rumours of tech firms making bids:

    Sky and BT win Premier League TV rights
    By Tom Espiner
    Business reporter, BBC News

    Sky and BT Sport have agreed to pay £4.464bn to broadcast Premier League football games for three seasons from 2019-20.
    Five of seven live packages have been awarded, with bidding for the remaining two ongoing.
    Interest from "multiple bidders" remains, the Premier League said.

    There has been speculation that online giants such as Amazon, Facebook, Twitter or Netflix could have entered the bidding process.
    The matches that remain up for grabs are for midweek and bank holiday fixtures.
    Sky and BT could end up paying hundreds of millions of pounds less than the record £5.136bn for the rights they paid in the 2015 auction.

    Sky Sports is to broadcast 128 games per season, including 32 matches on a Saturday at 17:30.
    BT Sport has won the rights to broadcast 32 matches per season on a Saturday at 12:30.
    Sky paid £3.579bn and BT paid a total of £885m to broadcast the matches over three seasons.
    Sky said it is now paying less, and that it "will show more matches than ever before".

    As it stands the broadcaster will pay £9.3m per game, whereas in 2015 it paid about £11m per game.
    It said it will show "Saturday tea time matches, Super Sunday, Monday Night Football and Friday Night Football".

    Sky also confirmed it would be broadcasting Saturday evening Premier League matches for the first time; eight fixtures are being introduced from the 2019-2020 season.

    Stephen van Rooyen, Sky's UK chief executive, highlighted the company's "disciplined approach" to investing in premium content.
    BT is paying less in total, but is paying more per game than at the last auction, where it paid £960m for 42 games per season.
    That worked out at £7.6m per game. Under the new deal it will pay £9.2m per game.

    The telecoms giant said it has been "financially disciplined" during the bidding process, and that it expects to make returns through subscription, wholesale, commercial and advertising revenues.

    It added that its customer base had more than doubled when it acquired EE. It has been marketing BT Sports to its EE customers.
    Premier League executive chairman Richard Scudamore said that "both broadcasters are fantastic partners".

    Austin Houlihan, director in Deloitte's sports business group, said that the value of live TV rights "will remain at a very healthy premium compared to those for any other football league from 2019 through to 2022", and that money can be ploughed back into talent and stadium improvements.

    He added: "It remains possible that a non-traditional media company will acquire an exclusive domestic live rights package to one of the 'big 5' European football leagues."

    In December, Sky and BT signed a deal to sell their channels on each other's platforms.
    Under the deal, BT agreed to supply its sports channels, which show Uefa Champions League and Europa League fixtures, to Sky.
    BT was also able to sell Sky's Now TV service, which includes Sky Sports, to its customers.

    I really hope the last two small packages donít go to a third company. It will mean British consumers will have to subscribe to three companies in total. If Sky and/or BT take the last two packages it will mean less companies to subscribe to.

    Wierd how the premier league could only sell 5 out of 7 packages. Thought they were all going to sell like hot cakes.

    Clubs need to start taking it easy. The boom is going to be over soon, as the price has come down.

    A lot of clubs are being sensible anyway imo. We've spent £5m net since Klopp arrived. Spurs don't go crazy. Chelsea don't anymore and neither do Arsenal.

    BT the biggest losers so far, 10 less games than the previous deal and the less favourable (I think?) 12.30pm kickoff.

    I hope Sky/BT get the last 2 packages too, another provider to subscribe to is going to be costly. Also hope Amazon, Facebook etc don't win a package, online streaming only isn't going to be ideal for a fair number of people.

    The fans are the biggest losers mate once again. Hopefully BT will drop their price considering they have less games on.

    I am not sure why Amazon, or the others, would be interested in bidding for just a handful of , sparrangly spread, games each season. Chances are that to recover that money they would have to go for a pay-as-you go formula which would attract no enough business for them.

    True, that's assumed unfortunately. But if the last 2 packages go to another subscription channel it would be even worse.

    it's a start though, just like BT initially before they managed to take all the Champions league and Europa games from Sky and ITV, they have to start small and build in this market, and we all know Amazon isn't going away anytime soon.

    I actually enjoyed the late Saturday kickoffs for BT, they had quite a few good discussions that they simply don't get time for with the 12:30 games due to the overrun with the 3pm games.

    Sky really need to up their game with Sky Go. It is a pile of ****. It doesn't even stream in 1080. BT's online offerings are so much better. I'd much rather BT had the lions share of the matches.

    Was it a silent auction like it was here in Australia?

    As predicted, what goes up must come down! The bubble has not exactly 'burst' more like the air is being let out slowly.

    I'm sure the overseas TV deal increase which means clubs wont see much difference but this is a warning sign to ALL clubs, this TV money isn't going to be around forever. It's probably the main reason why Mike Ashley is desperate to sell and I wouldn't be shocked to see other clubs up for sale soon. I dont think we'll every see NFL levels of TV deals over hear, mainly because we just a small island compared to America.

    maybe. what needs to be considered though is a business such as amazon are not limited in the same way as sky/bt as by being able to offer it online it can reach far more subscribers than either sky or bt and that alone can keep customer costs relatively low by comparison while still making a hefty profit from the endeavour.

    Amazon et al are probably testing the water - if it's popular with their subscribers, I can see them making a massive bid for the full rights to all games

    Iíve changed my mind on this - I think clubs should be able to negotiate their own tv deal.

    About time

    The sooner LFCTV can screen live the better. They might open the door slowly to that by allowing live screening outside of England.......as I am in Scotland that would suit

    I would start with scrapping the 3pm blackout entirely.

    Apart from the top 6, the other pl teams are bang average anyway. I think it would be better if we could get our own individual deal.

    The gap between the clubs would be terrible though. Itíd make the Premier League less competitive. Which in my opinion is the only thing it has going for it.

    it's already less competitive, outside the top 6 teams have virtually no interest in actually playing football, and it gets worse every season as the gap between the top 6 and the other 14 teams gets even wider.

    Is it competitive now though? Not imo.In fact... it's dross. Don't see why clubs should get a large share of the money, just to serve up crap and put 10 men behind the ball every time they play us. The bigger teams deserve more of the money.

    But imagine if the Top 6 has their own tv deals? The other clubs may not even bother full stop. You may think itís worst now but it would turn catastrophic if the Top 6 had their own personal deals.

    we essentially already have that when you factor in the European money for the CL and EL.

    Yes but youíd also have the other 14 teams being unable to hold onto players too. It would be a lot less competitive than its is now.

    Man Utd serve up garbage every week, but you can bet theyíll be taking the largest piece of the pie, and by a distance if sides could negotiate their own deals.

    The dross being served up is due to certain managers, not money.

    That would literally put half the teams in the league in danger of bankruptcy.

    And Utd would deserve the largest share... seeing they're by far the bigger club in the Country. As for the football they play.. that's a problem for them and their fans.

    Apart from the top teams, the PL is dross, anyway. They don't deserve a large slice of the pie.

    clubs and tv companies are already killing the golden goose one cut at a time.

    I can only see one outcome from the current situation, like it or not, and that's a breakaway European super league.

    Teams are scared of being relegated from the league, because of the money they would lose, which leads to the crap football on show.
